The Northern Ireland Foundation works for a progressive and outward-looking society, in a setting of tolerance and reconciliation.
One of our exciting projects is the newly established Forum for Cities in Transition.
This was the result of a recent conference at the University of Massachusetts Boston, where delegations from four cities — Derry/Londonderry, Mitrovica, Kirkuk, and Nicosia — led by their respective mayors or chief administrators, decided after three days of intensive interaction to create a permanent Forum. This Forum will meet once a year, at a meeting hosted by one of the member cities, on a rotating basis.
You can learn more about the Forum at website citiesintransition.net, and you’re more than welcome to sign up to this site. As a Ning site, this will be added to your network.
